Barn Quilt


One autumn night

a Full Harvest Moon glows

over the Red Plank House.

The Bear Paw barn quilt

hangs on the old home.

Mama pieced the Lone Star

from the scrap box:

dresses, shirts, aprons, worn out.

Adventure in the mountains:

wildlife rangers chased

a black bear through

our front yard, across the porch.

Twin cubs climbed an oak,

Spot barked up the tree.

Bears wandered the woods

searching for berries and walnuts.

That bear is certainly something I NEVER want to see in our yard! It did make a good poem though in your expert hands.
